" The Greatest Misconception:
LGBTQI vs Religion "

Date- Friday, July 19, 2019

Time- 2:30pm


Taniel Stamatovic Wood

We scratch our head with puzzled why religious folks have so much fear that even cause some parents to disown their LGBTQI teenagers or refuse to attend a same-sex wedding. Also, we hear the anti-LGBTQI political news daily. I will explain where the deep fear-based is coming from due to my past experience with the fundamentalist church, where I have had been spiritually abused. I later discovered, through unclobbering, that It is astonishing that there are only 6 verses out of 31,000 biblical verses, which has routinely been taken out of context to attack on LGBTQI folks. Eventually, I came out as a LGBTQI individual. The right tools of information will be given on how you build your own inner shield when you face an anti-LGBTQI message brought up by a religious person as well as to clarify the greatest misconception so we can be resourcefully aware.
